Default Re: Adrian Broner fans tell me what's suppose to impress me about Broner?

I have no reason to believe he otherwise considering he hasn't been embarrassed yet. The ponce fight was not life or death, and it was a young fighter's big step up... They have off nights, it happens... Name 1 fighter ATG or GOAT that didn't have any off night fights?

Is he a GREAT? No of course not... Does he have potential?? Umm... YEAH!!! Considering his future opposition, Guerrero, Bradley, Matthysse, Garcia, maybe Berto, etc... If they beat him? Than he's not the best of his era, if he beats them... HUGE statement

He goes life and death wih Daniel Ponce de León

Is fighting some 5 foot midget

Ducking the entire 140 by refusing to go up despite the fact he's clearly a 140 fighter.

Leaves himself open to get hit way too much.

Makes retard noises when he swings.

So tell me what's gonna stop someone like Lucas or Garcia at 140...f rom taking his god damn head off the moment he steps up?
I don't even like Broner, but this post is ignorant. Ponce is an EXCELLENT fighter, maybe a Great one. If you couldn't see Broner's class in the win over DeMarco then you DKSAB.

In all seriousness, Broner get did get a jump start over most prospects by being a young audacious black guy (let's not kid ourselves--this is marketable in the US), but since then he's given people plenty of reasons in the ring to make onlookers think he's future P4P material. However, there's plenty of justified backlash born of his premature entry into his promoter's official propaganda outlet's P4P rankings.

The difference between GGG and Broner = Broner is disrespectful and immature.

When?


I rememeber him being a special talent who done lots and retired by the age of 26/27, losing only an 8-4 decision to a prime ATG when he was nowhere near his best either mentally or training wise.

Also one of the best Head to head fighters around.

He'd easily be p4p top 2 if in his prime today.

I love Naz but Broner will go down greater than Naz when all's said and done, he's a far more complete fighter.

The retarded noises remark one had me dying but so true it's as bad as devon grunting if not worse.As for ducking 140lbs can't honestly blame anybody who thinks that, the guy easily rehydrates up to 150lb+ he has admitted this numerous times & even boasts about being much bigger than his opponents(147lb Guerrero included).Talented/skilled no doubt just vastly over hyped.6 divisions? ....never that.Should've started @ 135lb or 140lb & moved up to as highest 154 considering he has the frame.But started @ 130lb even though struggling making weight.Has clearly stated he will only go up to 147lb,doesn't want to test the waters @ 154lb one day like his idol floyd.Not overly impressed like some of these clowns though,don't know what the hoopla is all about .

All signs at this stage point to him having good power, an instinct to end fights, defensive speed, an iron chin, and an active and impressive fight schedule. Litzau and Eloy KO's are good examples of the first two.

Broner is willing to take the risk to finish because he believes in himself more than Floyd believes in himself. Another person who I used to wish would finish more often is Roy jr, I don't think Roy thought that he couldn't finish people, he was just sadistic and played with the mouse like a cat would. Broner is similar, just likes a dead mouse at the end of his game
Let's see how many "risks" Broner takes when he moves all the way to 147

Canelo weighs 168 on fight night...

Should he be fighting at 160

Broner is not the only fighter by far rehydrating...

Cotto...Oscar...Rios...ect ect ect

Don't just single out one guy

Ah yes...

Black guys get all the love in America

At least Broner isn't some 30 y/o paper champ or some middle-aged robot.

Boxers aren't marketed to the general American public, troll.
